It always amazes me how many Christians I meet who don’t know what the Bible teaches. The Bible is the manual for the Christian life and is the revelation of God Himself, who we must love more than anything in order to be saved in the end. Matthew 10:37 Do we read the instructions for a new electronic device, which will wear out in three years or less and need replaced? How much more crucial it is to read and understand the information that will determine our eternal salvation or damnation and that of those we love.

It is dangerous to simply believe everything you hear from another person, even a preacher. We are all imperfect humans and make mistakes. God tells us to “work out your salvation with fear and trembling”. Philippians 2:12 We alone are accountable to God for what we believe and how we live. We need to know what He has told us, so we can obey Him and will know when we are hearing lies.

Many people think the Bible is difficult to understand, so they don't try. Actually, it was written on a 6th grade level. Sure there are topics that are open to differing opinions, but the majority is easily understood, especially when you ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten you as you study. The Rabbis of old said that scripture has 70 layers of meanings, so after we learn the obvious meaning of a passage, there is still a wealth of knowledge to be gained from further study, with His help.

I am going to "demystify" how to study the Bible in a few short, easy lessons in the hopes of encouraging you to explore the riches it holds for you. Look in the label cloud under "Christianity 101" for lessons you have missed and God bless your efforts! I'm always available to you in e-mail and I pray for everyone who visits here.

This is the last of the 14 Lessons on using your Bible. You can find the other lessons in the archives in the left column or in the label cloud under "Christianity 101". Let me know if you would like more lessons like this.
CHRISTIANITY 101 - Using Your Bible Lesson 14

Here are some other things it’s helpful to understand.

A Messianic Jew is a Jew who has accepted Jesus Christ as the Messiah.

Apocrypha
The term "apocrypha" refers to 14 biblical books included as part of the Septuagint (the Greek version of the Old Testament), and the vulgate (the Latin version of the Bible) , but not included in the Hebrew Bible. In this context, the term "apocrypha" generally refers to writings entirely outside of the biblical canon and not considered inspired. However, the Apocrypha is included in the Roman Catholic Old Testament, but Protestants follow Jewish tradition in regarding all these books as non-canonical. (From www.juliantrubin.com)

Talmud
The collection of Jewish Law and tradition consisting of the Mishana and the Gemara, either the edition produced in Palestine about 400 A.D, or the larger, more important one produced in Babylonia about 500 A.D. Some people believe that Jesus is mentioned in the Talmud.
